Research here in North Central Florida is expanding the number of donors who can give their marrow to a recipient.
In the Medical Spotlight, Chris Cogle, M.D., an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Florida tells TV 20's David Snyder how researchers are finding a way to use donors who are a "half match" with recipients.
